    It truly sucks when your talking to some one

    I'm wayyyyy better than my teen years,

    but it TOTALLY sucks when you have a convo going and then the other person disappears. It's like, 'where'd you go??' I liken it to speaking with someone in person, and all the sudden the person just begins giving you the cold shoulder. I often forget that it's much closer to...

    I would prefer it people would reply,

    even its to say 'go away' or 'leave me alone' than to just ignore a message..

    Sending a text/message then getting ignored is

    the worst thing ever. It's like you annoy them and that they don't want to speak to you. It happens to me all the time..😒

    I ESPECIALLY hate when they don't text back

    until, like, 5 hours later. And the conversation is already stale (because it was just dormant for five hours), and you know that, and you know THEY know that, too. All you can do is sit there and stare at the response and do nothing about it because clearly, they don't want...

    I really like text sessions.

    Ones that just carry over and on throughout the day. It's like that person is right there with you, experiencing your day with you. Then sometimes things will to this soap opera level of intensity and then.... The lapse. Ugh! It's hard to unglue yourself.

    It really just depends on the person

    or situation. I don't get upset all the time, but if my significant other did this often, I'd definitely be upset.

    Especially when they are sulking about
